Question

Attached is a pic of my spark plug boot that connects to the plug.... all 8 of my plugs have the same carbon deposit... any ideas why it is like this.... the plugs are AC Delco.

Cool

This is the dirt attracted by the "corona" charge of the surrounding atmosphere. Whenever an electrical charge travels across a wire, the air about it becomes ionized. Thus, the particles within this atmosphere are magnetized to the charged surface.

Other ideas, guys?..........There are a couple of good electrical engineers here on this board.
